    I have fallen in love with golden rams and am very interested in getting some. We've got six danios and a baby guppy, and we're planning on adding some tetras in the future. We've got a 20lg. Really I'm just looking for some information on them. Do they need a school, or certain types of water, or will they fight with my fish? I would love advice from anyone with experience.
    Thanks!

    No, they don't need a school, but they aren't compatible with danios because danios need cooler water.
    And they are sensitive to water quality and should only be added to established tanks.

    Hm, I dont really get that. How old does your tank have to be in order to be established. What things to look for? Are we looking at months? Years? I understand it all depends on the system but just wondering what the general numbers are. Averages.

    A tank is established when the nitrogen cycle has been established (0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and 40 or less nitrates) for at least a month, some say 6 months though.
